The international music festival Django à Gogo® celebrates its 20th anniversary! The festival focuses on the art and style of gypsy jazz guitar of the famous Django Reinhardt. To date, the festival has been held in New York City and Maplewood, offering concerts, guitar and violin camps, and a final show at legendary venues such as Carnegie Hall and Town Hall. Beginning in 2023, to celebrate the 20th anniversary, the festival expands with Django à Gogo® Los Angeles and Django à Gogo® Toronto.

For the first edition of Django à Gogo® Toronto, Stephane Wrembel will not only perform with his famous New York City quartet, but he will also have two prestigious French guests: Simba Baumgartner on guitar and Aurore Voilqué on violin.

The program will also include two of the greatest musicians of the gypsy jazz scene in Toronto: Mexican-born singer and guitarist Nathan Beja (leader of “Viper’s Cloud” and “Nat Beja’s Continental Jazz Band”) and Hungarian guitar virtuoso, Debi Botos.
